Question about Tyan S2663 Xw8000 System Board Pn: 304123-001

1 Answer

On the HP xw8000 can the Motherboard (Tyan S2663) be switched over from SCS to SATA?

I bought a used HP XW8000 and it has SCSI adapters and I would really like to use SATA hard drives in this computer. I wasn't sure if it had SATA connectors on the board or if there was another adapter/controller I could add to it. Thank you very much!

Can an old HP Workstation xw8000 Computer that is currently using 512 RAM (PC2100 registered 184 PIN ECC DDR SDRAM DIMMs) be upgrade using 4GB Kit (2 X 2GB) PC2100 Registered 266MHz 184 pin DDR SDRA


According to a couple of people I have conferred with, that RAM should work.
Take a stick of the old ram out and make sure the the cut out, in the new RAM, is in the exact place as the old sticks. It cannot be off by a micron, or it will not fit.

I have an HP XW8000 with a Matrox Parhelia 128MB card on Windows 7-32bit. I tried to upgrade the Matrox bios to better perform w/Win 7....but, it appears that the bios may not have taken properly and now...


never change BIOS unless:
1: the PC has issues, post them and ask at HP , no here.
2: if HP tells you to flash the BIOS, 99.9 % of time they will not.

where did you get this BIOS> HP, seems not.
BIOS must be carefully matched, too the hardware first.
this pc only supports XP , not W7, per HP official site.
so there is no W7 BIOS for any XW8000, period
so that means you got the bios FROM A VIRUS SITE, OR WORSE.
Did you pay cash for it, ? omg.

what we do is backup the bios , first
so there is a regression path, if it fails. as most do. (wrong bios)


the one and only correct bios is there at HP.

Matrox.
this PC came with 3 video cards, not one was a MATROX.
so did you flash it, you never said what you flashed.
here is a list of all possbible flash rom devices.
HP MOBO BIOS
Video cards. HP and 100s of others
HDD Bios.
DVD drives, vast rom updates.
RAID
SATA chip
this PC has over 24 FIRMWARE upgrades,
if you read the HP page, not one is for W7,
infact the last update was 2007, 2 years before w7, was released.

here is your official pages
id recommend getting it all, as HP is about to drop support on it.
the 10year rule , ok>
this one is 2005 PC, so is ending soon.

here are all your drivers, and such, NO MATROX.

here is MATROX
they call it BIOS but its really BIOS extension for video only

Restore disk xw8000


I dont know if HP will have such Restore CDs since this machine is quite old but, you can restore such systems with a little know how. Your product key should be on the desktop (sticker) and you can use such product key when installing the OS (Windows, etc). I would see if you know anyone with an old Windows XP or Windows 2000 CD and you can load that then go to the following site for drivers.

When installing win xp from CD an error message says: no hard drives found


Just check that the hard disk is installed properly or not by checking its all cable.

If hard disk is detected then goto the bios option by pressing "DEL" or "F2" button as per your system configuration and then just find the : Native SATA support and disable it. After this save it by pressing shortcut key i.e. F10 and restart our machine.

After this start your XP setup.

Xw8000 beeps


This code is either for improperly seated or bad RAM or improperly seated or bad video card. Try reseating these parts before spending $$ for replacements as it might just be they aren't fully seated in the slots. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
